Due West, Wednesday, Dec. 11 - When the pieces fall into place, you know it. For the three guys known as Due West, that time is now. The magic happened the first time they ever sang together when old friends Matt Lopez and Brad Hull met Tim Gates at a party. The three started harmonizing and the other attendees kept asking how long they'd been a group. It's been happening ever since as they've toured the country, visiting radio stations and playing for appreciative audiences along the way. Due West has released a new Christmas album titled "I Hear Christmas" and will be available at this concert.
Jessie Funk, Friday, Dec. 13 - Jessie will entertain and inspire with songs from her upcoming Disney CD, Broadway classics, your favorite love songs as well as Christmas melodies to put you in the holiday mood.

Charley Jenkins, Monday, Dec. 16 - "Born country?" Exactly!!! Charley Jenkins has country roots that run deep. He was raised on a farm in Eastern Utah where he learned how to rope, ride and work hard. Life on the Jenkins farm revolved around cows, horses and of course rodeo. Country music is all about a real cowboy's life like Charley's. "Country is who and what I am. It is only natural for me to sing the songs that I love and relate to." Hear Christmas music with a touch of country as only Charley can do.
